Oregon officials in coming weeks will be submitting proposals to council on how revenue from a levy for senior services may be used.

Oregon voters last November passed a 0.5-mill, five year operating levy for local senior services. The city this year will collect $207,000 in revenue from the levy.

“There’s still an ongoing discussion about both the capital and operations side,” said Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley. “We’ll be talking to council members, and in the coming weeks, we’ll be bringing forward some proposals for council.”

Otherwise, how would the Oak Harbor High School student stand the repetitive motion of watching his self-built vehicle race along a makeshift track, measure the distance, calculate further distance and repeat again and again in quiet moments between classes and after school.

Purk, a senior heading for the University of Toledo to study biomedical engineering, is part of a 15-person team of nine seniors and six underclassmen readying for the 2014 Science Olympiad March 8 at Case Western University in Lorain.

The Harris Township trustees plan to have sufficient personnel hired by early April to provide 24-hour emergency medical service in the township and Village of Elmore.

Carol Baker, a township trustee, said last week the board of trustees has hired more part-time emergency medical workers to ease the burden on a pool of volunteers whose ranks have been dropping.

Voters in the village and township last November approved a 4.5-mill, 5-year property tax levy to fund additional emergency medical service. Annually, the levy is expected to generate $289,500, according to figures compiled by the Ottawa County auditor’s office.
